An entry in the Territorial Year Book, 1909, states that there was no drill hall; there was a drill ground, and a miniature rifle range in a ‘shop rented as drill hall’.

A drill hall was built at a later date on East Parade. The premises are now converted for business use. Thank you to a member of the Great War Forum for the information about current use of the drill hall.
